Carlos Alcaraz reveals which tournament makes him ‘feel at home’
Carlos Alcaraz is looking to become only the eighth man to complete the sunshine double, and the No.1 has spoken about where on the ATP tour he feels ‘at home’.
However, the Spaniard seems to feel good about his chances at the Floridian Masters 1000 event, “I feel at home here. It’s easy to play for me in Miami with all the energy I receive from the crowd, it’s amazing.”
Alcaraz continued, “I enjoy it and I think that’s the key why I play at such a high level for every match. I’m really happy with the level I’m playing and hope to keep going.”
Paul had won all of his previous 12 matches against Spanish players, including victories over Alcaraz and Rafael Nadal, but fell to a straight sets defeat against the 19-year-old yesterday.

Alcaraz appeared pleased with his performance, and was hoping to continue his form into his next match, “I played a really great match and hope to play the same level in the quarter-finals. I moved well, defended very well and attacked as well. If I play the same level I’m going to have a lot of chances to get through the quarter-finals.”
The No.1 will play Taylor Fritz in the night session later today, in a first time meeting between the two top 10 players, as Alcaraz looks to continue his winning streak from Indian Wells.
